In Memoriam Houston

Jay Bowdy

Los Angeles, CA – January 24, 2017: The Hollywood Men family lost a true friend yesterday morning. Our beloved Houston lost a battle to his demons and is now with us no more.

Houston had his own act called A Man’s World based on the famous James Brown song, “It’s A Man’s World”, as performed by American Idol’s Joshua Ledet. Below is a slideshow of this performance.

Not one person in this world has a perfect existence. We are all faced with challenges, trials and tribulations, they are a natural part of life.

If anything is to be learned by this tragic event, it is to focus on what wonderful things we have been provided on this earth, surrounding ourselves with people that have similar values and always reaching out to them when we are in pain.

Jay Bowdy Condolences

We all wish we had more time with this beautiful man. His spirit will live on in the memories we have of him and the brief time that we shared.

The minute I met Houston, I knew he was someone special; he had charm, he had charisma, he had an amazing looks and personality and I knew I had to get him on stage immediately.
What I want to remember is that you lived and that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

You were one of the kindest, genuine, most humble people I’ve ever known. There wasn’t a time that I saw you that you didn’t make me laugh.
Houston was one of the nicest guys that you would ever me always a smile on his face always happy always in good spirits.
I didn’t have the opportunity to know Houston for a long time but the time I got to spend with him and get ready next to him for the shows since his section was next to mine it was nothing but big smiles on our faces.
A good man & a great coworker tragically passed away, Houston ( Frederick Jay Bowdy ). He was a good person and a decent father to his children.
Houston was always nice to everyone and very pleasant to be around. It was always a pleasure hearing his enthusiastic voice when he walked in the door.
Jay “Houston” Bowdy will be a man missed by anyone who has met him. He was a man of good faith, good character and a great father.
You were always smiling and every time you walked into a room you would use your charisma & share your positive energy with others.
My friend Jay was taken from this life too early. But I think of him and I can only smile. Jay was the life of the party, a vicious workout partner, an incredible gifted talent, and a generously giving friend.
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we bid farewell to a friend of our brotherhood in the performance and dancing world.
Dancing on stage with Houston was an honor as he was such a phenominal performer and a pleasure to work with.
I just wanted to say a few words about my friend Houston. You will be dearly missed, you always put a smile on my face every time you came into the club and you were always in good spirits.
